  1. Im in the process of making a vertical forge ( still have to emply the tank in the proper manner) but i have a few products im thinking of using and was wondering if anyone has used this exact products for advice but... Ceramic blanket.... claims to be non toxic Castable refactory Im going with the normal layer layout with a bunch of kitty litter as the bottom but whats a good way to make the burner port, forging doors, and lid seal all in one pour/cast. Im kinda weary of the wool and those hazards so i wanna have it kinda sealed off as best as i can. Im planning on ending up with a 7in dia 8in deep chamber about 308ci( if i did the math right) but im thinking of going with a tee burner(picked up a couple of t fittings today, machine tomorrow). But heres a few picks of my other burner setups in action im thinking theyre good but im just a rookie First two pics are same burner Now other designs The only reason on my burner questions are i dont think i was reaching welding temp in my old forge(which could be because it was/is terrible and it was only about 110ci) i did it backwards to how most people progress in their forge size. But if you didnt notice im kinda set on NA burners and i didnt even know of frostys tee burner untill today because i thought it was a design that uses the "run" to attach the mixing tube(which im not a fan of their construction) Also could i use the different burners for different purposes i.e. welding, ht, temper...... As for the placement and size of the forging ports, should the top of the port be flush with roof of the forge and i was thinking of using 3x4 sq tubing as the mouth/doors So thats alot... but any help would be nice because i havent found too many vertical forge plans/ walkthoughs
  2. I want a vertical forge with a blown burner. Can someone share some plans for this? Not looking to spend a fortune, and I don't have a cutter torch.
